A one way mirror is sometimes called a two way mirror, a character from Paul Gilchrist’s play of the same name, informs his girlfriend. The object under discussion, a reciprocal mirror, is a means by which people can be observed without their knowledge, and works only when one side is brightly lit and the observers’ side is in darkness. It is a metaphor for something, but what?

Produced by the Mosman Musical Society, the cabaret style Fly Me to the Moon is an excellent evening’s entertainment. The selection and variety of songs from more mellow and less worldly times combined with the enormous talent of this dedicated group assured the audience of a heart-warming, “feel-good” performance.

While An Act of God has its origin in David Javenbaum’s popular Twitter@TheTweetofGod, maybe its inspiration came from the quaintly named “peril terminology”. An “act of God”, according to insurance law, is one without human agency and hence could not have been prevented “by reasonable foresight or care”. It follows then that the divine must be incapable of either, and for an entertaining 75 minutes, God, who conveniently assumes the dynamic form of actor Mitchell Butel, shares with us the full extent of his egocentricity.

On the Border of Things advertises itself as “a bilingual performance exploring the movement of people, agriculture and the environment”, and it is all of these. However, it is, above all, a tender love story and an intimate exploration of art making.

Paul Gilchrist’s Blind Tasting is a much-performed play from the repertoire of subtlenuance, and deservedly so, as it is funny, sharp at times, sad at others and consistently entertaining. Add to this, the charm, vitality and grace brought to this one-woman performance by Sylvia Keays, and the result is a thoroughly enjoyable evening.

A profound and wonderful experience, Barbara and the Camp Dogs, takes the audience on a journey from Sydney to Katherine, from anger to potential resolution, all the while sustaining the illusion they are attending a gig in a local hotel.
